    Mental note... open drinks are not safe in the P85D.

    In the P85, making sure the mouth of the can was facing forward was enough to prevent catastrophe during acceleration.... not so in the P85D.

    You've won this time, Mountain Dew...

    haha. whoops!
    I still have issues in just my P85 :tongue: need to think twice about what(or who) is in the car before hitting a hard corner.
    don't have to worry about any crazy 1.3g forward accel but I can hit that on corners and more on braking!

    solution?

    LOL, all the way to the back seats! That's impressive! I turn my opening to the front also, but I haven't tried a launch with a soda in the car yet (I guess I won't now for sure).

    I've had a rule since my first 'nice' car, no food in the car, no drinks other than water. The interior of my 2008 Porsche 911 still looked brand new when I traded it in to Tesla two weeks ago.

    Haha, that's exactly my method in my P85. Still, I wish I had your problem. :)

    Honestly, the only rule I really have for consumables in my cars: No smoking.

    Food, soda, whatever... not so concerned. I have no reason to worry about keeping the interior immaculate over the life of the car. It is my car after all, and I don't really plan on selling or trading it (said this about the P85 too, though...) and if I do, and there is some food/drink related issue with a seat it isn't going to hurt my wallet enough to justify the years of self-policing. Obviously any incidents will be promptly taken care of, also. (I keep paper towels, Windex, leather cleaner, and armorall cleaning wipes in the frunk)

    That said, I now have some bottles of Mountain Dew instead of cans... and some Hank's Root Beer. :)

    Solution: contigo cups!! They have them for hot or cold and even found some with straws that are completely spill proof. This is the only way anything other than water gets into my P85!!
